Ischemic cerebrovascular disease (stroke) is one of the leading causes of death and long-time disability. Ischemia/reperfusion to any organ triggers a complex series of biochemical events, which affect the structure and function of every organelle and subcellular system of the affected cells. The purpose of this study was to investigate the therapeutic(More)
Free radicals and inflammatory mediators are involved in transient focal cerebral ischemia (FCI). Preadministration of N-acetylcysteine (NAC) has been found to attenuate the cerebral ischemia-reperfusion injury in a rat model of experimental stroke. This study was undertaken to investigate the neuroprotective potential of NAC administered after ischemic(More)
Preservation of endothelial functions with low-dose nitric oxide (NO) and inhibition of excessive production of NO from inducible NO synthase (iNOS) is a potential therapeutic approach for acute stroke. Based on this hypothesis, an NO modulator, S-nitrosoglutathione (GSNO) was used, which provided neuroprotection in a rat model of focal cerebral ischemia.(More)
BACKGROUND This study examined the potential therapeutic effects of a combination therapy consisting of 5-aminoimidazole-4-carboxamide-1-beta-D-ribonucleoside (AICAR) and N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) to attenuate ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury in a canine model of autologous renal transplantation. METHODS Male mongrel dogs (15-20 kg) underwent left(More)
BACKGROUND Renal ischemia is of great clinical interest because of its role in renal failure and renal graft rejection. The purpose of this study was to investigate the therapeutic effects of a combination therapy of: n-acetyl cysteine (NAC), a potent antioxidant, sodium nitroprusside (SNP), a nitric oxide donor and phosphormidon (P), an endothelin-1(More)
